by the flames of battle, are unmatched in skill and courage. >> on the same day that president obama gives his inaugural address, the u.s. drone strike kills three people in yemen. today we look at the new documentary, "dirty wars: the world is a battlefield." >> dimon's sue was nothing like kabul. life is defined by the war. everything revolves around it. in yemen, there was no war, of these not officially. >> the film, "dirty wars," follows jeremy scahill to afghanistan, somalia, and yemen as he chases down the hidden truth behind america's expanding covert wars. we will speak with jeremy and the film's director, rick rowley. >> night rates have risen to astronomical levels where there are 1000 raids a month happening. decades after vietnam, one decade into this war, we have gone back to body counts is our only way of measuring any kind of progress in the war. >> broadcasting from the sundance film festival in park city, utah, all of that and more coming up. this is "democracy now!," democracynow.org, the war and peace report. i'm amy goodman. hundreds of thousands packed into the national m

believe, is how we'll achieve republican renewal. >> as president obama told the new republic this weekend, until republicans feel that there's a real price to pay for them just saying no and being ob strkzist, you'll probably see at least a number of them arguing that we should keep on doing it and facing perhaps another four years of stonewalling opposition. the president may be taking at least one tip from his predecessor. >> fool me once, shame on -- shame on you. fool me -- you can't get fooled again. >> yet -- and, yet, today a ray of hope, possibly. a day before president obama heads to las vegas to outline a proposal for imgrigs reform, democratic and republican senators will announce an immigration fix they aim to sell to both sides of the aisle. the plan includes a path to citizenship for 11 million undocumented workers along side a provision for stricter border security. jon mccain an architect of the proposal underscored the urgency in getting something done, especially for his own party. >> how can you convince republicans about the path to citizenship? >> well, look, i'll giv
to whether you want to expand the base of the party. here's what he writes. obama is arguing that misfortune can strike americans in all forms. a sdabt, a storm, illness, or merely outliving our savings. ryan's budget imposes savage cuts to food stamps, children's health insurance, and other mitigations of suffering for the least fortunate. and ryan also voted against relief for victims of hurricane sandy. by ryan's definition, if the government is rebuilding your destroyed home, you're a taker too. >> look, this is a straw man argument. the president said earlier that we had suspicions about medicare and taking care of the elderly and feeding poor children. when he sets up these straw men, to affix views to add ver sears that they don't have, to win the argument by default, it's not an honest debate. we want to have a safety net. a safety net that's there for the vulnerable, poor, for people who cannot help themselves. but we don't want to have a culture in this country that encouraging more dependency that saps and drains people of their ability to make the most of their lives. >> which pa
rothman. president obama begins his second term at the white house facing up packed agenda and divided congress. lou dobbs and the first four years and looks ahead to critical, the critical second term agenda. melissa: if you thought washington satisfied its search to tax breaks it -- rich, think again. senate democrats reportedly want even more knew taxes. lori: breaking details out of algeria after the bloody for a hostage situation at the gas plant. hopes fading for survivors. the grim toll and the unanswered questions that. president obama making his career just a couple of moments ago that he is ready to do battle on the economy and that, but not at the expense of social security, medicare, and medicaid >> we, the people, still believe that every citizen deserves a basic measure of security and dignity. we must make the hard choices to reduce the cost of health care and the size of our deficit. but we reject the belief that america must choose between caring for the generation that built this country and investing in the generation that will build its future. lori: the president g
in tax increases with obama care. new tax increases at the beginning of this month. and now they are calling for even more tax increases, and they are not calling to cut spending. they are calling for spending increases. so basically what they're saying is, they want americans to pay more so washington can spend more. that's not going to help the economy, and that is not going to close the gap and balance the budget. the reason we want to balance the budget is not to make the numbers add up. we think that's necessary for growth and opportunity. we think it's necessary to make sure that our kids don't get this debt that they won't be able to handle if we keep going down the path we are on. >> but there are certainly those in the white house who would take issue with what you said or might even say to use your own criticism that's a straw man argume argument. they were prepared to cut additional spending to be part of a bigger agreement that republicans weren't able to agree to. there is more room for spending cuts. it's a matter of how you do it. >> the president was insistin
>>> this morning my question -- can president obama end perpetual war? and plus the real fight over reproductive rights. it is about access. and we will go below the line to hear from america's homeless children, but first, these boots were made for combat. good morning, i'm melissa harris-perry. this week marked the second of two seismic shifts in the united states military in just over two years. the first was december of 2010 when president obama signed the repeal of the "don't ask, don't tell" law and ending a policy that mandated shame and secrecy as requirements for service. the second happened on thursday when defense secretary leon panetta joined the joint chiefs of staff chairman martin dempsey and made this announcement. >> we must open up service opportunities for women as fully as possible. and therefore today, general dempsey and i are pleased to announce that we are eliminating the direct ground combat exclusion rule for women. and we are moving forward with a plan to eliminate all unnecessary gender-based barriers to service. >> just like that, 200,000 military combat
umbrella. the united states doesn't have that choice because if we do what obama wants to do with which modern liberalism wants to do is re-create that choice and shift the resource that comes out of this remarkable engine of a free market into social welfare, increasingly unsustainable, and allowing it to come out of essentially the budget of the greatest power on earth. and choosing the european path, hoping we'll keep the world at bay, hoping we will sustain ourselves with a reduced presence in the world and a radically reduced capacity for defending ourselves, defending our allies and projecting our power. so that would be sort of an an litic way to present why we are in decline. it's not a conscious choice. i don't want to play the amateur psychiatrist or even a professional one in this. i don't want to look in obama's soul but if you look at where modern liberalism is taking us, it is to re-create the choice the europeans made in the late 1940's after the second world war. the problem for us, and i think the problem for the west is if we decline and use our resources internally, w

. and there's a lot of frustration among republicans as just a policy matter that the obama administration is not doing more to support the opposition there, not intervening a little more in terms of giving support to the rebels and he will probably answer questions about that, and generally questions about the arab spring overall, what's going on with egypt, what's going on with morsi, those problems ought to be at the forefront. >> different also because he has already been a presidential candidate. and i'm wondering, you know, in terms of contrasting it, ron, yesterday with hillary clinton, a lot of people interpreted some of the answers she gave as looking ahead to 2016. john kerry has wanted to be secretary of state. it's no big surprise that this is a role he has coveted. but for people out there who don't follow politics as close as we might, they might ask a question, why. here is a guy who has been in the senate since 1984. he's been a presidential nominee. why this, why now? >> well, there's two jobs he's always wanted. first, he wanted to be president of the united states and he

and the u.s. to talk to north korea for a long time, and that is something that both the obama administration and the of korean -- and the outbound south korean president has been unwilling to do. the chinese have considerable leverage over north korea. on the other hand, beijing's top priority is to ensure stability in north korea. they are not going to do anything that would undermine the regime of kim jong-un or accelerate any movement toward collapse or internal trouble in north korea. for china, that is more important than the nuclear issue, although clearly they will try to rein in north koreans in now. it is likely the north koreans will ignore the chinese. >> the mali rebel army, which currently holds large parts of the country's north, is split in two. the breakaway faction says it is ready for peace talks with the government. the group has been weakened by french, malian, an african union attacks. rebels have abandoned rocket attacks. the residents say they used them as human shields. u.s. president barack obama says he will put general john allen ford for the top nat

. neither the bush administration nor the obama administration has wanted to confront the scale of international terrorism and the scale of the fanaticism which is driving it and you could argue that obama is worse, but the elites in both parties are trying to find some way to get it down to being a manageable problem. it's a big problem. and frankly, nobody in the u.s. is covering the problems in pakistan, which are very real. pakistan is probably building more nuclear weapons right now than any other countries in the world. we talk about an iranian bomb maybe in the the near future. i think there are whoever a hundred pakistani nuclear weapons and it's a very fragile country with very, very deep problems. afghanistan is decaying, it's not getting better. iraq is decaying, the amount of violence in iraq has gone up dramatically and syria is a mess. and bahrain has a serious problem and yemen is a mess. somalia is a mess. you start looking around and begin to realize there's a much more dangerous world out there than president obama's inaugural address or secretary clinton's tes
